Bait Selection Strategies

If you’re going fishing in your Yetti aluminum ice house, you need to figure out how much bait to buy, where to buy it, and how to take care of it. When you buy live bait, transport it in a cooler with a sealed lid, and keep it in the bed of your truck or the cab instead of your ice house. Take good care of them until you get to the lake. Additionally, when you get to the lake, remember to change the water for your minnows frequently. When you do, add water slowly- don’t drain all the water and then refill the cooler. If you do that, you will shock your minnows and you may or may not get them back. For jigging, you will want crappie minnows and fatheads. For set lines, you should go for shiners, small suckers and, if available, jumbo fatheads. If you’re going with a small group, here’s a list: four dozen shiners, one dozen suckers, two scoops of fatheads, and a scoop of crappie minnows. By following these guidelines, you can ensure you have the right amount of bait and take proper care of it during your fishing trip in your Yetti aluminum ice house.
